The Fever

a documentary by Katharina Weingartner

Every 60 seconds in Africa a child dies from malaria. The illness accounts for the death of over a million people every year, 90% occurring in the sub-Saharan regions of Africa. Aside from the human cost, the annual economic losses attributed to Malaria total over 12 billion USD.
And despite the vast amount of research, there is currently no single solution for the fight against malaria – yet. Plasmodium is one of the oldest known parasites on earth and has played a crucial role in various wars; but the war against malaria still remains to be won.
For THE FEVER Katharina Weingartner focuses the complex history, present and future of Malaria and observes the search for a solution. The film introduces the people who work in the health industry and the people who are trying to survive the illness.
